The Amazing Spiderman 2: Crap Review

This is arguably the best Spiderman film. Much better than the 2012 film that jumpstarted the franchise and stands toe to toe with Sam Raimi’s Spiderman 2, in my opinion. But, while I believe that the Jesus Christ allegory in Spiderman 2 is the franchise’s best moment, TAS2 is stronger from top to bottom.

Not to say that this is a cinematic masterpiece, but the film accurately captured the Spiderman lore in all its awkward and beautiful teenage glory. Much of the film spent on Peter’s relationship with Gwen Stacy – the pains, cheesiness, and the confused transition to adulthood. It is not for everyone, but it is what makes Spiderman the flawed hero that he is.

Sally Fields was a delight. Her effort to make ends meet and her heartfelt moment with Peter emphasized on the dynamics between two broken people struggling to make ends meet. More Sally Fields on the third installment, please.

Dubstep was played when Electro was on the screen. You’d think electronica would be played during his fight scenes with Spidey. But then again, it’s no longer the ’90s.

The fight between the Green Goblin was heart-stopping and ended in heartbreak. It is in this daring moment that defines the latest franchise of Spiderman – uncompromising, refreshing, and unbelievably hopeful. Tobey who?
